This page contains images and information about conditions affecting the female infant's buttocks, or bottom. The baby's bottom is usually covered by a diaper, thus creating a warm, dark, moist environment for many common rashes and irritations to flourish. Some frequent complaints include diaper rash, yeast infection, herpes simplex virus, infection of the hair follicle (folliculitis), and skin infection (cellulitis). The pictures below illustrate these conditions. Click these images to link to more information about each diagnosis, including recommendations for home therapy and guidance on when to make an appointment with your infant's doctor.
Red bumps (non-pus-filled) centered on the hair follicle are typical of folliculitis.
Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV)
Small, grouped erosions, some of which are broken, display herpes simplex lesions in this infant’s diaper area.
